Tweetdeck posts results from its Hack Day, asks you to choose its next feature

Tweetdeck held another one its “Hack Days”, bringing together all of its designers and developers to stop working on their usual tasks and start to build or come up with an idea that can either increase the feature-set of Tweetdeck or take the company in a completely new direction.

Each one of the team has created a video or screenshot of their creations, allowing visitors to its blog to view the concepts that were presented by the Tweetdeck team on Wednesday’s Hack Day. With a good few projects worthy of development, the Tweetdeck team calls upon its users to decide what they feel would be worthy of inclusion in one of the Tweetdeck applications.

The company says it will use the results of it the poll to see which one of the ideas might make it into production – to help you choose, we have embedded each project below.
